Greatest Need

Give Back

Direct your gift to the most urgent health care needs in the Lima area

The health care needs of our community aren't always predictable

Your gift directed to where the need is greatest makes vital funding readily available for the most pressing needs that arise

Many of our donors trust Mercy Health Foundation Greater Lima to use their donation in a way that has the greatest impact. We depend on this flexible funding to support a range of important projects, programs and services at Mercy Health.

With your Greatest Need gift, you help renovate patient care areas and public spaces in our hospitals and clinics. You help replace equipment and medical technology so people get state-of-the-art treatment. You support outreach programs that help people prioritize good health and make Lima and west-central Ohio a better, safer place to live. And so much more…

When our local communities and our patients have needs that arise, Mercy Health is able to quickly respond with resources. But we depend on donors like you to contribute to one of our flexible-use funds!
